Marsha and Izzy Cowan opened the doors of Bernina Sewing and Designs in October of 2005 to serve the customers of the
El Paso and Southern New Mexico region. 

My husband Izzy and I had been looking for a business that we could work on together and when Ann of Ann Silva’s Bernina in Albuquerque suggested a need for a dealership in our area, we knew we’d found our opportunity.

I’ve been sewing since I was five-years-old and quilting for over twenty-three years. I worked for the Little Foot Ltd Co., traveling to quilt shows, various guilds and shops around the world teaching the Little Foot method of foundation piecing. 

At the same time, Izzy had been busy running his construction and concrete company and fixing anything that needed fixing. With his business experience and repair skills and my sewing background we knew Bernina Sewing and Design was a perfect fit.
